A Portent?


A New Jersey school district is closing an elementary school named after the President.

ASBURY PARK — The state fiscal monitor who oversees financial operations in the school district Thursday morning ordered the closing of the Barack H. Obama Elementary School as of July 1.

Students next year will go to the district's two other more modern elementary schools -- Thurgood Marshall on the east side and Bradley on the west side.

Bruce Rodman, the monitor, made the decision after the school board in recent weeks failed to support a plan by Schools Superintendent Denise Lowe to reconfigure elementary grades to create early childhood learning centers in the district, a plan which would have kept the Obama school open.

Eerily prescient, the school is being shut down because of someone's poor performance and/or incompetence. Barack Obama Elementary School - FAIL.

Even better, the last name of the person who ordered the closing is "Rodman."

Oh, this is precious.

It would be a better world if all the schools with that name were shut down.

Vicar - Fwance held on as long as they could but Gaddaffy's forces made another end run around the Marginot Line using three dozen bicycles and an armored jogging stroller pushed by a goat.

The Fwence ran out of bullets, bayonets, balls and baguettes.

Mark - the Karl Marx Middle School is still open in NYC. They prepare students for the George Soros Community Organizing College.
